Welcome to the
*NEW
‘Shopping Guide’ …
On Sept. 11, the 54-year-old Manatee Shopping Guide announced on its back cover that it
was the last issue. Staff was let go, even delivery people were told, sorry, no more job. We stepped
in to change that. We hired some shopping guide folks, consulted with others, and we are ready to
start anew for you. And we are local. There’s no big group and no out-of-town stock-owner com-
pany, just folks who live and work in Manatee County like you do. We do NOT outsource any jobs
and we have been publishing news in Manatee County for more than 16 years. We started humble
in 1992, just as with this venture, but we plan to go gangbusters into season, giving our advertis-
ers the best possible product by providing high circulation, great home delivery, and keeping costs
low. For readers, we hope to provide bargains and information in abundance. You know us as The
Islander, THE newspaper on Anna Maria Island, carrying on a reporting tradition that began in the
1950s. We’re the “little engine that could.” We hope you’ll jump aboard with us and continue the
tradition of the shopping guide in Manatee County. We promise to make it worthwhile to you and
to our local economy.
